South Carolina Native Plant Society Lowcountry Events for November 2018

Lecture - Tuesday, November 13, 6:30 pm, Biology Auditorium, 101 Duckett Hall, The Citadel
Ashley Demosthenes, President & CEO, Lowcountry Land Trust
Ashley will tell us how the Land Trust protects ecologically, agriculturally and historically significant lands across the Lowcountry. Her presentation will highlight the work of the Land Trust in protecting and restoring the Keystone Tract, the site of this month’s field trip.

Field Trip - Saturday, November 17, 8:30-11 am, Keystone Tract, Francis Marion National Forest
Led by Joel Gramling. The Keystone Tract is off of Hwy 41 just south of Huger. Meet for carpooling at the Harris Teeter at 2035 Hwy 41 in Mt Pleasant at 8:30 am. The roads at Keystone can be rough if we get a lot of rain, so carpooling in trucks or SUVs is advised. We will stop at another site off Hwy 41 to look at the target communities for the restoration project and then proceed to Keystone to compare this site undergoing restoration. Hiking boots are recommended as there is no trail system; we will be following logging roads and exploring various habitats. Bring snacks and water. Please RSVP to Katie Ellis at 843.906.9916 or

SCNPS Lowcountry Elections will be held at November 13 meeting.
